Bernie Sanders has a history of praising the old Communist Soviets and Cubans. He’d rather America took pages from their books.
But Socialist Bernie Sanders just got TORCHED for this massive hypocrisy.
Bernie Sanders is a powerhouse in the Democrat Party.
His radical ideas are a major reason a new line of progressives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar were able to make it in Congress.
Despite this, his party has ensured that he will never win a presidential primary in his lifetime, with many believing the rug was pulled out from under him before the 2016 election.
Democrats have good reason to fear his rhetoric – he openly disavows Capitalism, the single best economic system ever implemented.
Americans want jobs, lower taxes, and laws to be enforced. They don’t want their country transformed into Bernie Sanders’ socialist wonderland, and it isn’t doing Democrats any favors at the polls.
But that hasn’t stopped him from pushing his Leftist agenda to anyone who will listen…but at a price.
Senator Sanders was criticized online for selling tickets to his anti-capitalism speech and book launch in Washington, D.C.
Twitter users slammed Sanders, a registered independent who caucuses with Senate Democrats, for his costly speech condemning capitalism and promoting his new book, which is due out in March.
Front-row tickets to the Washington, D.C. event cost over $100.
Georgia Republican Rep. Austin Scott quipped to Fox News Digital that “Sanders is the ultimate capitalist.”
“He’s been selling the same trash over and over for years,” Scott remarked.
“Multi-millionaire Bernie Sanders is charging up to $95 per ticket to attend his upcoming anti-capitalism event, where he will be hawking his anti-capitalism book for $28,” tweeted BASEDPolitics editor-in-chief Brad Polumbo.
“You really can’t make this s—- up,” he continued.

Republican Reps. Dan Crenshaw of Texas and Bill Huizinga of Michigan also chastised Sanders for the event, with the Michigan Republican wondering if anyone else “else see[s] the ‘irony’ in Bernie Sanders selling tickets for his ‘It’s Okay to Be Angry About Capitalism’ book tour on Ticketmaster?”

“Bernie Sanders is selling tickets to his book tour, ‘It’s Okay to Be Angry About Capitalism,'” Crenshaw tweeted. “On Ticketmaster.”
“Gotta pay for that lake house somehow,” conservative commentator Ben Shapiro tweeted.

Attorney Jenna Ellis had a similar reaction, joking that the event’s revenues were “going to Bernie’s fourth house.”
Other Twitter users chastised Sanders for the event, with former Kansas GOP congressional candidate Amanda Adkins claiming that “capitalism is only ok for Bernie Sanders if he is making” money.
The event, titled “It’s Okay to Be Angry About Capitalism,” will take place on March 1 at The Anthem in Washington, D.C. to promote Sanders’ new book of the same name. Tickets for the event, which go on sale to the general public on February 3 at 10 a.m. ET via the ticketing behemoth Ticketmaster, vary from $35 to $95.
The event, co-hosted by Politics & Prose and I.M.P., is named after Sanders’ new book, which organizers describe as a “progressive takedown of the uber-capitalist status quo that has enriched millionaires and billionaires at the expense of the working class, and a blueprint for what transformational change would actually look like.”
No words … ok maybe some … I guess capitalism is only ok for Bernie Sanders if he is making $$$. 🤣😂🤣

Politics & Prose said in their announcement for the event, which is guaranteed to expand on Sanders’ Democratic socialist theme, that Sanders’ visit at the venue is a “ticketed event through The Anthem.”
A statement on the event’s Ticketmaster page indicated that tickets “priced at $95, $75, and $55 include a copy” of Sanders’ book.
Maybe Bernie should spend more time living out his principles instead of criticizing America.
